I am still looking for the person who left an anonymous comment about their Potowatamuses being done (yes, I know that's not right, but that name drives me CRAZY). Please check and see if you have a J if you think you should. If you don't, please e-mail me or leave a comment (or better yet, both, since it seems like some e-mails haven't been getting to me). If you do leave a comment, PLEASE make sure a link to your blog is included either in your profile (which needs to be public) or in the text of the comment. If you don't have a blog, you need to e-mail me your sock pics or post them on Flickr or Photobucket and send me a link. I need to see your socks before you can get credit!!!
Since we don't have any socks to look at, I'll give you a pumpkin update instead. Yesterday we were heading out the door to have dinner at my in-laws, and I was confronted by this:
I asked Bill what had happened to the pumpkin, and he looked at it with a puzzled expression and said "Huh. That's weird." Now, Bill has a deadpan sense of humor that often leaves me stumped. I'm like my mom in that I'm quite gullible a lot of the time. So my first thought was that the pumpkin had finally disintegrated. The second was that my mother-in-law HAD finally come and stolen it off our porch. Then it clicked, and I knew that Bill had snuck out and buried it while I thought he was on his run. So now we'll be on the lookout for pumpkin plants in our front bed this summer.
And for those of you who are as much of the Katie-Holmes-is-totally-pathetic mindset as I am, I give you this link. It has it all - Tom Cruise bashing, a gay cowboy reference, and a Ron Livingston mention (he's my boy from Office Space and Swingers).
I'll leave you with this lovely pic of all my Masters Level I swatches out blocking.
The loose threads you see are my crazy method of keeping track of which swatch is which (it's a little system involving loops and knots to represent numbers). Now I just have to write up the answers to a slew of questions and write my little one-page report on blocking, and I'm ready to send them in! I'm ready to be done with it, I can tell you that!
Oops! I almost forgot - today is FLASH YOUR STASH day! Go see the yarn I'm going to eventually use for Denmark from Knitting On The Road, along with a lot of other lovely lovelies. Thanks, Mama-E!
